can some plz tell me why this happens (gets stuck):



how do I resolve this QUICKLY, without re-downloading the whole block chain again?

This happens often enough to really be an annoyance... I have to grab the wallet and open it on another workstation while re-downloading the blockchain on the effected system...

it's the latest qt wallet.

Running from the command line and passing -rescan might work.

If not, you can download a latest set of the block*.dat files and use the -reindex command line option.  

Typically, one of those fixes it for me.  I go in that order, because the first might work without requiring downloading of anything.

delete peers.dat. you're connected to a cancer node thats why you are showing out of sync.

i forced it to download from begining... so I can't tell what peers.dat removal would do... I get this issue often enough that I can try just the peers.dat removal next time...
can I speed up the download by increasing the 8 connections somehow?

Is it possible that your ISP is messing with peer to peer connections thinking it is like torrent?

It looks like you have the default 8 connections.  Setup Port Forwarding so that you can get more connections.  My client used to run with 60+ connections until I limited it to 20.

Also if this is the wallet that you have been doing your AMU transactions with you may have a problem with wallet fragmentation.  If that is the case I would PM a Pool Op and see what they do about it.

you can download a good chunk of the blockchain via the bootstrap torrent. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=145386.0

It must be something to do with your firewall.  You could try temporarily disabling it.  You're not running out of room on your C drive are you?  I had an SSD that I filled up and had to move the datadir to a secondary drive.  (add --datadir="D:\bitcoin" to your shortcut)

You could try downgrading to 0.8.2-beta -- this is what I run and it's never had that problem. If you're using this for your business I'd recommend a dedicated linux box for the security and uptime.

Not really a fix, but you could make a backup of your blocks directory to avoid redownloading.

nope

So not even redownloading the entire block chain worked?  Or the bootstrap file you get from the torrent I PMd you?  If I were you, I would delete everything EXCEPT the wallet.dat, back it up too.  Then put the bootstrap.dat file in the directory and reopen bitcoin with -rescan.

Are you doing something like using multiple wallets or something?
